The dazzling strapless satin dress will be auctioned by Profiles In History auction house in California from June 10 – 12, 2010. This piece of American cinema history is expected to grab at least a $250,000 price tag. Considering, however, that the gold beaded gown Marylin wore to sing Happy Birthday to President Kennedy in 1962 was snatched for well over $1million, the expectation for the pink dress might be a tad undervalued.
The auction from June 10 – 12 will also feature the Wicked Witch of the West’s hat from the 1939 Wizard of Oz, Johnny Depp’s Scissorhands from Edward Scissorhands, and Darth Vader’s light saber from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Elvis Presley’s clothing and a guitar and Steve McQueen’s shotgun from The Magnificent Seven are also being auctioned.
